Travel Injuries in Asia May Prove Pricey Without Travel Medical Insurance

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - Feb 8, 2012) - HCC Medical Insurance Services, LLC (HCCMIS), a provider of travel accident insurance, announces an infographic highlighting the potential perils of vacationing in Asia. The infographic details the potential costs of common travel injuries such as twisting your leg while running to catch a flight, and less common accidents like being kicked in the face by a yak while hiking in the Mongolian Hills.

Asia serves as an excellent vacation destination for a mix of relaxation, cultural exploration and adventure. Travel hotspots in Asia include China, Mongolia, Nepal, Japan and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Unfortunately, not every vacation can go off without a hitch. Sometimes tourists should expect the unexpected when traveling overseas with a group because even if one finds a good deal on a hotel, the cost of travel injuries can be substantial.

"It's best to plan ahead, as you might end up spending tens of thousands of dollars when leaving the country without travel medical insurance," said Mark Carney, CEO of HCCMIS. "Something as simple as a twisted ankle or broken foot in your group can be costly. Fortunately, Atlas Group, our group travel insurance product, offers coverage costing less than a dollar a day."

This infographic was designed to remind consumers that travel injuries can inconvenience a planned vacation. For this reason, travelers must plan for the unexpected before departing.
